Emilio Sanchez
(Cuban/American, 1921-1999)


oil on canvas
initialed lower left.
In a thin gallery frame.
60" x 60", framed 61-3/4" x 61-1/2"

Provenance: Private collection, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Notes: The Cuban-born Emilio Sanchez was acclaimed for his series of large-scale, intentionally flat, architectural renderings that revel in the interplay of light and shadow. His slightly abstracted and often abruptly truncated structures are elegantly reduced to their essential lines and colors, emphasizing their inherent patterns. Exulting in the seemingly mundane - a Cuban beach house, Brooklyn bodega, or a suburban porch - Sanchez's distinctive style of thick, dark lines juxtaposed with blocks of color, reveals the striking beauty of the often overlooked.

Estimate $15,000-25,000

**In overall very good condition. A few pinprick-sized areas of discoloration. Some slight surface soiling. Area at lower left with whitish accretions. Not examined under UV light.

Sold for $18,750
